With more than 5% of the world's GDP being affected by the destruction of rust, the possibility of a

solution seemed remote.

Rust has historically been considered similarly to human cancer, which may be treated through meth-

ods such as surgery, radiation or chemotherapy but invariably cancer returns, despite the treatment.

Taking on the world's largest fertiliser producer, Westfert, whose 48 000 square meter facility had

fallen prey to severe rust, by the Selchem Coatings projects team seemed preposterous, especially

with full knowledge that several of the world's leading coating producers had seen the magnitude of

rust and walked away.

Selchem projects had quite the task ahead of it.

Steels big enemy, we know to be water and oxygen, if however, combined with salt such as in coastal

regions you expose the risk of rust by 1000 percent. If one further combines steel to acid, times this by

10 000 percent.

Westfert had all the above, with phosphorus, and potassium in the fertiliser.

Selchem have spent decades understanding rust and developing solutions around the problem.

Westfert was different, we needed to find a permanent solution to stop it for good. Finally, Selchem

Coatings achieved just that, arguably being the first coating company worldwide ever to do so. This

once again instilled that combining a project team to self-undertake the coating of a project alongside

our chemical engineering and laboratory technicians proved to be an ongoing winning formula.
